The World Orienteering Championships continue tomorrow

The World Orienteering Championships continue tomorrow with the Long distance race taking place from 11:00 – 17:00 (British Summer Time: 9:00 – 15:00) tomorrow (Tuesday 4 July 2017). 

The Long Distance terrain is stretching over an area between the highest hill and the deepest lake of Estonia. Run ability varies from good in the coniferous forests to poor in the deciduous forests and there are only a few tracks. Many marshes with varying sizes can be found in the terrain. There are some rather new deforested areas that are up to 2 years old. The contours form two distinct areas. Firstly a hilly part with some minor terrain features and then secondly an area with large valleys with some smaller valleys flowing into it.
